The darndest things!

Hey everyone. How you all doin'?

I guess it's been a while since I read or even posted much at all. I miss it. I miss reading journals too..:-( I still think of this place as 'J~land' from the aol journals..lol!

I was stood brushing my teeth at the sink yesterday morning. I'd just gotten out of the shower. I was listening to 'Magic fm' on my lil' ducky shower radio thingy that sits on the shelf inside the cubicle. The reception isn't crystal clear but it's good enough! Anyways, the song ended and the DJ began talking bout the usual crap. Weather reports, traffic...etc.. Then he says "And tomorrow, we're gonna be focusing on artists who's names begin with the letter 'Q' ''. He mentioned 'Queen' with Freddie Mercury but then I lost reception for a few seconds. In those few seconds, as I had the tooth brush in my mouth, I thought to myself 'Ooh, what about Status Quo??! Actually, nah...that's an 'S' name. They wouldn't get away with it." Then, like 3 seconds later, the reception came back and the DJ said,"I'm thinking of playing something by Status Quo, but I doubt I'll get away with it". He repeated the exact words I'd just said to myself about the very same thing! OK, I know it's just coincidence, but still, it was kinda freaky.

Also, the night before last, I had a bizzare dream. I dreamt that my uncle Frank was rich and successful from his singing career and asked me to live at his house for a while to look after an elderly friend of his who wants to spend his remaining days with him. I said yes. The next thing I know, I'm helping this elderly guy up a long flight of stairs and then took him into the kitchen where I sat him down and then made him a drink. He started talking to me about his past. It was actually interesting, but then I got a phone call on my mobile. You'll never believe who it was. It was Elton John!! Apparently, he was also a friend of my Uncle Frank and found me attractive. He asked me out on a date!! LOL!!

Weird thing is, I haven't seen or heard from Frank for such a long time and I'm not even close to him so I don't even think about him to be honest.

Anyways.....there's a punchline.

When I woke up that day, my Mum told me that she was going round to Frank's old house to clean it out for my Uncle Henry. Straight away I thought "How weird. I've just dreamed about him and now today, he gets mentioned as soon as I wake up". Then later on, I was round at a friends house and someone asked me, "Did you read the paper about Elton John? Apparently he's told Jade Goody and her husband that they can live at his house to live out the remainder of her days" (Jade Goody is a Z list British celebrity who sadly only has a short time to live as her cancer has spread everywhere). I almost fell off my seat! I was like "Woah, AGAIN!!".
Infact, writing this, I've only just realised another connection to the dream. The fact that Jade is spending her final days at Elton's house, and in my dream, the old man was spending his final days at my Uncle's house! OK, me thinks I'm reading far too much into this..so I'll stop! lol!

Something else happened the other day too, but I wont talk about that yet. It was spooky! lol!

Got a few things I wanna write about soon. Gotta get a few things off my chest, but I'll leave you with this song that I recently discovered through a person that........well, I'm very much in love with. I'd never even heard of this band until he played it for me. The story behind this song is also beautiful. Check it out if you have time.

It's called 'Moments' by Emerson Drive.
